So now we're going to be put into the High Risk band of the Corona Virus - Tier 3. It seems so unfair that we live at the far west of East Yorkshire in a rural area with few cases and are lumped in with Hull in the East 35 miles away. But we're not the only ones in the country feeling like this.
So to take our minds off things we went a walk today near Malton - after delivering some pots to the Cosy Cottage Soap Company there.
We went to a small village called Menethorpe - it sounds as though it could be of Anglo Scandanavian origin with a name ending in "thorpe". It's a pretty village, though nothing outstanding, nestled in a little valley with a stream running through it. The walk takes you through fields on one side of the stream and comes back on the other.
It blew the cobwebs away and cheered us up a bit. And then - when we got home there was a bunch of flowers waiting for me on the doorstep - no note who they were from. But lovely.....
